Living in Southern CA with pale, sensitive, combination skin is a challenge! For years I've worn a SPF 15 daily moisturizer on my face and added a hat when out for long midday exposure, but still, at 43 the sun effects are really showing. I've spent the last 2 or 3 years trying products in the SPF 30-60 range and this is the best I've found so far.

So many "new" formulas, including the Neutrogena lines with Helioplex, go on smoothly and seem great for the first day, but then I develop an incredible itch everywhere the cream touched, particularly on my neck, that lasts for days! After trying a few brands/formulas all labeled for sensitive skin, I've concluded it must be the newer sunscreen chemicals. I had resorted to "old school" high-factor sunscreens when I knew I was going to be outside for a long time. Every one that I tried that didn't irritate instead left my face feeling greasy and looking shiny. Also, after a full day I would have white-head blemishes from clogged pores. Nothing more fun than zits in your 40's!

When I saw this product at the store and noticed the "original formula" label I took a shot. It's WONDERFUL! It goes on smoothly and adsorbs quickly. It does go on with a white cast from the sunscreens, but that completely disappears almost immediately. I've found I actually like the white cast for feedback during application - I can see that I've gotten full coverage while I'm applying it, but then it's gone. I've worn it several times for outdoor events with lots of sun exposure and it delivers: no sunburn, even on the nose or under the eyes, no shine, no breakouts, no itching and no hat-head! Thank you Neutrogena! This is the first review I've written, but this product motivated me. Please keep serving the truly "sensitive skin" market.

I bought this because it's fragrance-free and offers good protection for sensitive skin. First, I applied a tinted self-tanner all over my face and then I applied this sunscreen on half of my face and on the other half I put Neutrogena's Face Shield Sunscreen, which is also fragrance-free. I did this because there were some reviews that these two products leave a white film on your skin, so after using both, this Sensitive Skin sunscreen made me look pale even after I had applied the tinted self-tanner!! But the Neutrogena Face Shield sunscreen was less noticeable and did not leave my face feeling greasy, so I returned the Sensitive Skin one and kept the Face Shield sunscreen! I recommend this if you're sensitive and you want a Physical sunblock & don't mind the white film, otherwise, go with the Face Shield (the one that's unscented)!!

    Comments about Neutrogena Sunscreen Lotion, Sensitive Skin, SPF 60, 3 fl oz:

    I chose this Neutrogena Sensitive Suncreen for my face, neck and chest during a trip to the Caribbean, and since I have sensitive skin, I was hoping it would be gentle. In spite of claiming to be especially formulated for sensitive skin, I broke out in a bumpy, itchy rash AND sunburn, even though I applied generously. The '60' SPF is a joke. Seriously, I think the scientists just threw darts against a wall and said 'let's go with 60.' Meanwhile, I used 30 Coppertone sunscreen on the rest of my body and I didn't burn and didn't breakout in a rash anywhere else. I did go into the water, but under the prescribed 80 minutes. I also reapplied. Days later I still have a bumpy rash. While the front of the bottle has a "100% naturally sourced sunscreen ingredients" claim, it neglects to inform the user that the 'inactive ingredients' make up a laundry list of chemicals, including silica (basically fine sand) and retinyl palmitate (Vitamin A--a known photosensitizer. Worst sunscreen I have ever used--and I used to love Neutrogena products. What went wrong with this one?

        My skin doctor recommended that I find a sunscreen with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as the two active ingredients. I was glad to find a Neutrogena version! I have benefited by their products before! I have not used it long enough to know about its effectiveness.

              Most sunscreens cause a rash on my sensitive skin. This is so effective and gentle, I not only use it for my very sensitive skin, but also use it on my little boy every day before sending him off to preschool. It doesn't leave the ghostly glow that so many do; it looks great.

                I'm grateful that Neutrogena continues to offer high-SPF and a formula for sensitive skin. I've got extremely fair (I burn in about 10 minutes) and sensitive (itchy, dry, and prone to rashes) skin. An SPF of 60 allows me to watch my son play a full baseball game dressed for the weather. If I use anything lower I'll get a terrible burn.

                  This product is useful in daily use, but not in truly high UV environments. I applied this several times a day in the desert and still burned. I was the only one, others in the group tanned, but did not burn using other sunscreen.

                    My mom is allergic to almost all sunscreens. she has tried various brands including expensive department store brands. She always breaks out in a red rash when she puts any chemical sunscreen on her face. This sunscreen only has physical sunscreens so she can tolerate this without any problems.
